Lord Shiva is also known from name of mahakaal in simple term the destroyer (destroyer of evil) or Rudra.

He is one of the five primary forms of God in the Sanatan Dharma, "the Destroyer" or "the Transformer" among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. At the highest level Shiva is limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless. Shiva also has many benevolent and fearsome forms. In benevolent aspects, he is depicted as an omniscient Yogi who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash householder with wife Parvati and his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya and in fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga and arts. The main iconographical attributes of Shiva are the third eye on his forehead. Words are not enough to define charm of lord shiva, still i tried to wrote on Shiva-charisma. The snake Vasuki around his neck, the crescent moon adorning, the holy river Ganga flowing from his matted hair, the trishula as his weapon and the damaru as his instrument. Shiva is usually worshiped in the aniconic form of Lingam. Temples of Lord Shiva are called shivalayam. Shiva is also known as Rudra, Lord of Destruction. Not just lord of destruction , Shiva is known for his simplicity, That's why his followers call him bhole - nath, simplest of simple god, Lord Shiva has millions of name But most popular names associated with Shiva are Mahadev, Mahesh, Maheshwar, Shankar, Shambhu, Rudra, Har, Trilochan, Devendra (meaning Chief of the gods) and Trilokinath (meaning Lord of the three realms) Rudra is mentioned in the Rig Veda.

He is the one who is in everyone or who's presence can be feel everywhere. Supreme ruler yet so silent. For his devotee Shiva is not just destroyer of evil. He is the simplest of simple God. Various People knows him different ways, i know him as the one who never does unjustice to anyone, the supreme consciousness. He is auspicious to those people who believes in the power of truth and has compassion in their heart. The one who is boundless, formless, limitless still bounded with thin thread of devotion, framed and within reach of his devotees. Where everyone in this world wants elixir, he is the one who choose poision for himself and drank it for saving the world and never ask for anything in return. The one who is always being a giver not a taker. The one who teached the world not to be materialistic. Who himself is a Vairagi and a sage with trident in his right hand. The one who treats every devotee equivalently, he never distinguish them in the name of Rich, poor, caste, color, region. For someone he is father, for some one else he is friend or a teacher who teached the world about Yoga, Ayurveda and Music.


It is not about shiva, It is about you

For just a minute look around you. Observe the sound coming to you, now please look around the simple grass blade, how beautifully it is designed by nature. Problem is, we humans think that everything is human centric or related to humanity, Although somehow it is related to humanity but it is not related to humanity completely. It is realted to your soul which is so pure and intangible. It helps us to purifies our mind and lead us toward supreme consciousness. If we see and observe Hinduism then we really realize that, how deep is it's root. Hindus never invaded anybody in last 10,000 years and reason is obvious, they already have everything. In today's tech world we are living a stress ful life and we are dealing with it by taking antibiotics. Antibiotic medicine works differently on individuals. It may cause side effect, if used continuously. On the other side, from vedic age sages and Indian people knew how to deal with stress and other diseases without antibiotics. Yoga and ayurveda helped indians since ages, which is now part of their life. World is now understanding it clearly, how these thing can be beneficiary to entire human race. 21 june is the international Yoga day. Now Question comes how hindus came to know all these stuff ? My answer will be simple from Ved and Purans (ancient Indian text and epics). These Ancient epics defines that Lord Shiva is the origin of all. It doesn't mean, if you practicing yoga, you have to worship shiva. Shiva never asked you to be his devotee. He doesn't need your devotion. He is complete in himself (supreme consciousness) that's why he is a Vairagi.

  Firstly Let's understand this term Devotion many people use this term in their own self interest. Actually devotion means having compassion and sweetness for others in your heart. you should carry this sweetness in your heart. This extraordinary feeling which is known from the name of devotion will set you free from all your sorrows. Without the feeling of compassion and sweetness in your heart, life will become bitter, which has happened to huge segment of society. But you need to understand that there is difference between love and devotion. So obviously there will be difference between devotee and lover although both terms have common ground which is affection. A lover will be a intellectual person who will have expectation with his / her partner whereas a devotee will never have any such expectation. Lover will always try to find what is in mind of his/her partner. For knowing this they will try to dissect them emotionally which is not in the case of devotee.

Let us understand it more clearly by taking an example of a flower. A Lover will pluck a flower from garden and his intellectual mind will make him dissect it's petal in his emptiness whereas a devotee will do a song composition in the devotion after seeing that flower in his emptiness. So it is not about shiva it is about you. It is about your inner peace and i have got my inner peace in Lord shiva. Who teached me about compassion. Om namah shivaay.
